    1909-11 E90-1 American Caramel Cy Young (Boston) SGC 80 EX/NM 6 - Pop Three, None Higher. We could not have picked a better card to close out this phenomenal set. Not only is Cy Young one of the most coveted Hall of Famers from this significant American Caramel issue, this is his "Boston" version which feature the definitive Young portrait - the work of noted photographer Carl Horner. This image has become the quintessential depiction of Young that so many have come to identify him with in the same way the T206 portrait is to Honus Wagner to most. Few cards demand more awe and amazement than does this card at any grade level and this is a wonderful copy. Matter of fact it equals with two others as the highest graded examples recorded on the SGC census report. Graded SGC 80 EX/NM 6. The corners show modest amounts of wear at tips. Surfaces are blemish-free and borders are fresh and resonates a bright white rarely seen in a 110 year old card. Every print dot of the glorious portrait perfectly positioned and again, there is that radiating freshness. Any serious fan of this set or baseball's greatest pitcher has to make a serious effort to add this to their collection. Total population is over 150 when one combines all of the unspecified team and "Boston" specific cards on the SGC census. This is one of three cards recorded as the highest graded examples graded by SGC.
